Subject: Give yourself some more concrete!
Another one of these great films that say that more urban sprawl is the answer to our trafic congestion problems. Build more highways! More parking lots! Awesome shots of people building highway after highway. Love the highway cutting through the Detroit Post Office, wonder if that's still there. A crazy relic.
